North Staffordshire Railway Company 1978 Ltd

More than just a railway….  The Churnet Valley Railway takes you on a journey back to the classic days of railway travel on a rural line that passes through beautiful countryside known as Staffordshire’s ‘Little Switzerland’.  The picturesque stations offer lots of interest with a complete range of visitor facilities, offering special events, dining dates, venue hire and education facilities.

The Railway operates thanks to the army of willing volunteers who are members of the North Staffordshire Railway Company (1978) Ltd, the charity which rescued Cheddleton Station nearly 40 years ago and helped establish both the railway and a heritage collection.
